Nice going Nancy, let us see some pictures of the stitches.
Cathy if you are coming on the 16th? I will pay you for the needles and I'd like to purchase a spring needle. Probably the 12. I lucked out with this Adler, I have a ton of DBx1 needles that came with my Hitachi treadle. I didn't realize the 16x231 and DBx1 are the same needle! Always something to learn and I love it! I can't wait to get the Adler cabinet re-finished and ready to bring in the house! I just love that Adler! It is so cool to have a reverse on a treadle! Cathy, I checked all my treadles and the Adler is the only one with the large and small belt groove for fast and slow treadling!
The difference between the DBx1 and 16x231 and 16x257 is the scarf or lack of one and possibly the tip length.
most of the time they are interchangeable. The exception is a zigzag machine that uses this style needle won't work with the non-scarfed versions.
Yes, I will be there on the 16th. The needles I gave you last month were a gift. No payment will be accepted.
Congrats on getting the Adler to sew!!! I think that's the best part of rehabbing these old machines.
I felt the same way after I got the Singer 115 all freed up and sewing. :D
Sharon-Is it steam punked or as my friend calls such styling "steam puked"? Glopping things together doesn't seem very artistic to me, but someone will like it.
By the way, I just finished piecing a back for one of my unfinished strip quilts with the 60. It sews very nice like all my Pfaffs.
Sharon, I know you treadle a 60 - any insights? I don't remember if your 60 came as a treadle, or you did a motorectomy and made it a treadle?
"motorectomy" - ..is now in my lexicon..... love it.
